I have been waiting for my salary payment since 13 June 2012. I was also informed only after a number of emails that the company had changed ownership.
In other words, they are not paying me and they failed to inform me of the change of ownership when it happened. Furthermore I have not received the new contract as in effect under said new ownership.
In email correspondence I notified them that I will withhold my services (writer) until I am paid. They have subsequently threatened me based on their definition of my 'non-performance' that I will be penalized for work not done while I await payment. They have also insulted my work and personal ethics, presumably as a means to get me to put my tail back between my legs.
I am considering filing for unfair dismissal, although I have not resigned yet.
I am clueless, please help.
